MIA sets new record for cargo shipments in 2020

Miami International Airport set a new record for cargo volume in 2020 with 2.32 million tons, which was 57,382 more tons than its total in 2019.

MIA finished the year exceptionally strong with an average of 210,000 tons in October, November and December, making them the airport’s busiest months ever. MIA also ended 2020 with a record 59,000 cargo-only flights, which was nearly 8,000 more flights than in 2019. 

“Congratulations to Aviation Director Lester Sola and the MIA cargo community on reaching this milestone, which signals that Miami-Dade County’s largest economic engine continues to generate more business revenue and job creation for our residents,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
